    I think it was Klue who posted the coupons for Joann's, Thanks for that, cause I needed two items. Our Joann's will let you use any amount of coupons as long as they are different amounts. So I had a 50% and 40%. Gladly went to two Joann's and 30 1/2 yards later, I came home. Exhausted and excited with all my great buys. They had bolts of 50% off clearance fabrics. $2.00/3.00/4.00 and 5.00. Now I'm trying to figure out where to put this new stuff. In the remainder of my lifetime I can never use all I have. Even if I sat at my machine 24/7. Help!!! I need to be admitted to the fabric rehab. My poor family if anything happens to me.

    Thanks for the offer of help!! I may be taking some of you up on your offers. I was given a ton of sample fabrics from a decorator in town, stuff I am going to use in landscape quilts, and have a ton of dec fabrics, that I have no clue what to do with. Plus the scrap stuff I'm saving. I really need to do that challenge. The real challenge is staying out of the shops. :roll:

    And if worse comes to worse, there should be enough fabric to mummify you, right? That should stop folks from questioning your acquisitions. :D

    well, I am a novice....so I DON'T HAVE A HABIT!

    But I am leaving for Los Angeles in a week and I am taking one empty suitcase just in case I get to "some" fabric store(s) or lucky enough to get downtown to the fashion district....which is fabric heaven.

    Y'all.....all my friends, right....so if you think I am getting a habit....

    DON'T TRY AND TAKE ME TO REHAB...JUST TO GET YOUR STICKY FINGERS ON MY NEW STASH.....

    We must be related! We cant stand to pass on a sale and seriously you can not pass on a fabric sale and coupons too. That deserves a PARTY!
    I am currently in a 12 step program to curb my fabric addiction. Currently I am still on step one, admitting you are addited to fabric, Well HECK YA I am its PRETTY darn pretty! Who wouldnt. Ok I admitted it now let's all go sale-ing and get some more. Did I mention I have been on step one for 6 years. I am a slow learner in many ways LOL.
    Enjoy every yard of fabric you have! I know I enjoy mine!

    When my DD looks into my sewing room (which is always a mess) and sees all the fabric, she sighs and says "Mother really, do you need all of this fabric and what will we do with it when the time comes". I always smile and tell to give it to another quilter!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I love fabric and can't pass up a good sale. :)

    Think of it this way!

    We are all doing our PATRIOTIC DUTY to shore up the economy! :shock:

    It's an absolute necessity at this time in history particularly that we support our LQS! :shock:

    Just think of the red, white and blue.....and for our worldwide quilters:
    lest you forget this economic thing is world wide so you have to do your
    part, too!

    Quilters of the world, UNITE, pledge to buy more fabric---we must, we must, we must.........

    (Fabric Rehab???????????????--what's that?)
